Indian startup develops AI blockchain solution for hotel guest authentication

Startup Zebi Data India has developed a customer identity authentication product for hotels to protect guest data and help law enforcement identify and prevent criminal activities with blockchain technology, The Hindu reports.

The company’s Zebi AI Chain solution is being used by 200 hotels in the port city of Visakhapatnam, founder and CEO Babu Munagala told assembled media, and it is planning to launch it nationally. The same technology can also be implemented to secure land registry, employee, educational certification and other high-value records.

Laws requiring hotels to report guest information to police daily have resulted in privacy risks from manual processes and sharing of paper documents, according to The Hindu. By storing hotel guest data in blockchain, Zebi can provide guests with a Zebi ID, and the ability to consent to any data transaction. Hotels benefit from a much faster and less laborious process of compliance with the legal obligation, the company says.

Zebi also intends to work with police in the future to authenticate data against the Aadhaar database.

Digitization of hotel guest authentication and records has also been encouraged in other countries, such as by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry, and the Singapore Tourism Board.
